IF

the fight journalists face in countries where freedom of expression endangers their lives deserved recognition around the world, and it does…

THEN

Maria Ressa of the Philippines and Dmitry Muratov of Russia won the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize. Their work taking on Rodrigo Duterte and Vladimir Putin respectively should propel investigative, fact-based journalism to the forefront. It will be interesting to see how their leaders and their governments will honour the two, but they should be honoured respectfully and without persecution.
